HC Deb 28 March 1956 vol 550 c2134
31. Mr. G. Thomas

asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation what reply he has sent to the memorandum submitted to him by the Industrial Association of Wales and Monmouthshire concerning the serious effects on industrial productivity in Wales and Monmouthshire caused by bad roads; and whether he will make a statement.

Mr. Watkinson

This memorandum, which only reached me within the last week, is at present being examined.

Mr. Thomas

Will the Minister give some urgent consideration to this matter, because the state of the roads is one of our major problems there? We look to the right hon. Gentleman for a considerable measure of help in this matter.

Mr. Watkinson

I certainly will, and, of course, I shall examine it myself.
